In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the church federation in which I am a member yesterday called the churches to a day of prayer. Included in the material they provided were some meditations for families to use in a time of devotion at home. One of those meditations was on Psalm 94, a psalm that challenges us to reflect on God's purpose in our suffering: He is preparing you for glory, leading you to depend on Him, encouraging you to look at Him.

Verses 6 and 7 of this Psalm were suggested to be sung after the meditation was read. I've tried in this recording of two arrangements on the Genevan melody to capture the words of the text of these two verses through the registration and tempo. I hope that you will be blessed by this Psalm as I have been.

Text found in Book of Praise, Anglo-Genevan Psalter:

6. Blest is the man by you instructed
and by your discipline corrected –
the one to whom you teach your ways
to grant relief in troubled days,
till for the wicked, one and all,
a pit is dug in which they fall.

7. God will not leave his own forsaken;
his love is steadfast, never shaken.
His people he again will bless
with judgment based on righteousness,
and all who have an upright heart
will give his justice their support.
